    Been here 50+ times
    For an interesting perspective on the square, find the round plaques that read "Centro del Colonnato" (there are two) — you'll see all the column rows on your side lined up perfectly, like one column.

    You can go to the square for free if you don't want to go into the church (or don't have time to wait in the line).

    Pro tip: if you don't have reserved tickets for the Wednesday audience with the pope in the piazza, talk with a Swiss Guard they might give you one 👌🏼🇨🇭🇻🇦

    Great space which holds a lot of meaning in it. When we visited there was something going on there, as there were chairs and music, but very interesting to see

    Very beautiful and worth the stroll around. However the food on the main strip is absurd and expensive. Inside the vatican museum the food is chaper.

    If you do not visit this area, it means you did not visit Rome. See the real art and architecture.

    Nice square, come in the morning as the sun behind the Basilica in the evening will ruin your photos.

    Entering just Piazza San Pietro is free if you are patient enough to stand in the line. However, if you wish to tour the chapel and museum as well, start your way from the museum.
